Controlling immigration would instantly improve our economy.

On a day of Budget talk, leaks, tax and all the rest, there is one big area that everyone is ignoring. Though the Coalition have admitted the damaging effect that uncontrolled immigration has had by putting in controls on non-EU migration, unlimited EU migration is still having a very damaging effect.

Having a huge, uncontrolled influx of low-skilled workers entering Britain's economy has been damaging. Wages have been undercut and British youngsters have subsequently found it far tougher in some areas of the country to get a job. That has added to the welfare bill massively.

The Office for National Statistics itself tells a very plain story: that since 2004 youth unemployment has gone up and up and up. 2004 - the year that Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia joined the EU and thus had open borders with the UK. Not a coincidence that youth unemployment in the unskilled labour market has increased since then. 

Bosses may love the influx of cheap, hard working labour that they now enjoy. But this reliance on foreign workers en masse has led to a decrease in opportunities for many British youngsters who sit and rot on the dole. They may not want to work as hard as an Eastern European - but not wanting to shouldn't be an option. Working class mentality has turned to lazy ass mentality for far too many. Many youngsters are have fed up and made dependent on government thanks to Britain's huge welfare state. It truly is a disease plaguing our communities.

The common argument heard nowadays is that 'English people won't do the jobs' that migrants now often occupy. So before mass migration in recent years, who did do them exactly?

Britain needs border controls back, allowing migrants in who we actually need while training and getting into work our huge potential workforce of British youngsters who have been hung out to dry, being paid to do no work for money out of our taxes.
